The Prince Albert Police Service is advising the public to be vigilant and to report suspicious activity to the Police after receiving three separate reports of youth being approached by suspicious vehicles.
The first incident occurred on March 12, 2018 just after 8 p.m. on the 3000 Block of 6th avenue East. The incident involved an unknown male in a grey Dodge truck with a black grille. The male, described as a white male in his 40s and dark curly hair asked two females walking if they wanted to get into his truck. The females stated “no” and walked away. The truck then drove away.
The second incident occurred on March 15, 2018 just after 7 p.m. on Bowerman Crescent. An unknown male described by the victim as a dark skinned male driving a black 2-door car, approached a lone youth male. The suspect opened the car door and told the youth they had candy for them and asked them to go into his car. The youth then ran away from the vehicle.
The third incident occurred on March 16, 2018 just before 9 p.m. on the 1600 Block of 15th Street West. The youths involved described the suspect as a black male driving a new white car. The two youth were walking and felt they were being followed by the car. The driver of the car pointed at the youth and drove away without saying anything.
At this time police are unsure if the incidents are involving the same suspects or if they are related.
Police are asking the public to be aware of these incidents and speak with their children and students to remind them to have a planned route when walking to and from school, walk along main roads, never talk to strangers and to call police immediately if they observe suspicious activity.
